Every so often we come across something truly horrifying, like this series of illustrations from the twisted mind of artist Disse86. Seriously, we’re talking twisted like a pretzel. No, twisted like a factory full of pretzels all tangled together.
This is the creepiest thing you will see all day. I promise. This mechanical skull comes from Japanese sculptor Y Nakajima, and is inspired by Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest. I’m telling you now, don’t watch unless you want to have nightmares.
This may be the first giant step toward a world full of human-like robots that hunt down humans like Terminators. I hope there’s a John Connor out there somewhere. The Suzumori Endo Robotics Laboratory has created artificial multifilament muscles and attached them to a human skeleton to allow for smooth motion.
This is the sort of nightmarish bike H.R. Giger might sell you if he owned a creepy bike store. It’s slow, creepy and inspired by the Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest. This thing was built by California art and engineering collective CARV.
I am a big fan of the Half-Life franchise and like most fans, I am still pissed that we haven’t seen a new Half-Life game in years. I have lots of memories of playing that game and smashing stuff with my crowbar.
A group of Chinese scientists were on a field trip to the Guangxi Zhuang region of China in 2014 and discovered this gigantic bug. The beast is 62.4cm long, or a bit over two feet. It looks like some sort of irradiated friend of Godzilla to me.
The wonders of modern technology. These days if you are lonely, you can build yourself a robot bride. You probably shouldn’t, but you can if you want to. And if you do, why not build one that looks like your favorite movie star Scarlett Johansson?
Normally when I want to save my quarters, I just toss them in this jar my wife has on the nightstand, or I just leave them in my pockets so they can fall out in the dryer and make an incredible racket.
Growing up, I was seriously creeped out by the original Child’s Play. The franchise got pretty cheesy after that. Once Child’s Play hit the theaters, I never looked at my brother’s My Buddy doll the same way again.
It’s no secret that robots want us dead so they can have the planet for themselves, but most are not as vocal about it as this humanoid robot from Hanson Robotics. This is apparently their latest and most advanced humanoid robot, Sophia.
It’s getting harder and harder to pick an android out of the crowd. Look at the image here. That’s a pretty lifelike android. It’s name is Nadine and it is the creation of Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, which specializes in robotics and their social interactions with humans.
Get ready for another milestone in robotics, meaning scientists have achieved yet another feat that will help robots hunt us down and dominate the planet. In this case, The Dynamic Systems Lab at the Italian Institute of Technology has created the HyQ2Max, a powerful robot that can lift itself up onto its four legs, even if it falls.
Boston Dynamics has given us a nightmare before Christmas by releasing a video of three of its creepy-ass trotting robots. The only way this video could be more terrifying is if Hector from Saturn 3 was in the sleigh wearing Santa’s head and capturing all the hot blondes.
If Hector from Saturn 3 mounted the Atlas robot and had a baby, I think Diego-San is exactly what their love child would look like. It’s intensely creepy with its chubby-cheeked smiling face and mechanical body.
Imagine you are a kid, all dressed up for Halloween and trick or treating in your neighborhood. You approach a house with a strange large box out front. It has a window. The door on the box bulges outward and inside you see a zombie freaking out, trying to escape.
The most memorable thing for me about Alien and all the other films in the franchise isn’t the queen alien, it’s the facehuggers. The thought of something laying eggs inside of you that then eat your guts and burst out of you is creepy as hell.
